Just wondering if any body know if its possible to get a back rest for the Africa Twin. I got a top box but want to go on a longish trip and would rather remove it and fit a more comfy back rest for the pillion.
No worries It's probably best to contact them and check that it'll hold the weight OK before buying one as I don't think it was designed as a back rest (it looks at least a sturdy to me as a givi box with backrest would be, but best to be sure).
This style of rack and soft luggage is very popular and widely sold in Australia, (GEARSAC) the fittings are slightly different fo each model of bike. They are more than strong enough as a sissy bar/back rest. I think you can get back pads for them too. With the soft bags you can turn them around when you are solo to keep the weight within the bike and "outside" when you have a pillion. Great simple system as you can take them off and on in seconds. I've had a couple over the years.
